Superior Confections Mint Wrapper advice

Postby clubconsoles » Tue May 12, 2020 12:33 pm

Hi All
I believe there is a member on here who can reproduce mint wrappers?
I have a couple in a machine that came from the US that no longer seem to be reproduced.
Is it possible to redo them and get all the creases out whilst keep that old fashioned look?
I do not want the graphics to look crisp and new, if you know what i mean!
i also need the bottom part finishing off as the last few millimeters has clearly not printed out!
I really need someone to pm me so i can send them a scan and they email the new artwork back to print out as i have a colour laser printer

Thanks treefrog. I am well aware you can get them on eBay as well as this source, but they are wrong - they have Rockola address on them. Iwant ones that have Superior Confection address on them.
I must apologise for my OCD nature on this, but thanks. !THUMBS!

To get an undistorted high resolution image from your wrapper you need to put it on a flatbed scanner (rather than photographing it), then clean it up in Photoshop or the like, which will result in a sharp, new-looking wrapper. You could perhaps pre-stain (with tea/coffee etc.) the paper before printing. I think attempting to include the "old fashioned look" in the print itself doesn't really work.

If you upload a scan, maybe some kind soul will do it for you. |/XX\|
